Live-streaming video of the Decorah bald eagles is viewable on several websites, including RaptorResource.org, DecorahEagleCamAlerts.com and Ustream.tv. The webcams are only live during nesting season, which generally lasts from late January to June.
The Decorah eagles webcam shows a pair of bald eagles building their nest, mating, laying eggs and caring for their eaglets until they leave the nest. The Raptor Research Project set up the first live webcam in a cottonwood tree near the Iowa Fish Hatchery in 2007. The RRP is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving birds of prey.
In 2011, the Decorah eagles became the most viewed live-stream of all time, with 2.4 million views per day on the Ustream website. As of 2015, more than 280 million people around the world have watched the Decorah eagles webcam.
